With the onslaught of Thanksgiving goodness last week and a few days worth of yummy leftovers, I needed something lighter. Since the Holiday season is also in full swing and things are crazy here, I also needed something quick and easy. This quick veggie pasta was the answer! I swallowed my Italian pride and used my favorite jarred marinara and pesto in the sauce to save lots of time. I was out of my stock of the homemade stuff in the freezer, so I turned to my pantry as I often do in times of desperate need, ha!
I also added a couple of tablespoons of Greek yogurt. This was going to add some fantastic creaminess to the quick veggie pasta. I made sure everything was tossed together well, then I took the pasta off of the heat. I always like to finish pasta with a bit of fat to bring it together, so I drizzled extra olive oil on top and gave it one last stir. Oh my goodness, this quick veggie pasta could not have been easier or more delicious! The mushrooms made it feel meaty and the tomatoes gave it fantastic fresh bursts. I loved the tang and creamy texture the yogurt gave. This was just the ticket for a busy weeknight! xo
